Authors : Thanh-Lam Nguyen, Lam Thanh Hien, Ngo Quang Huan and Pham Xuan Giang

Abstract: Participating in robotics competitions, including ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon), has been a preferred learning environment to identify and foster student’s creative potentials and skills for high quality 21st century workforce. Lac Hong University (LHU) and its students have made special achievements in ABU Robocon. Therefore, this study aims at identifying the determinants of their success as a typical example, so that, we can have proper actions or strategies to motivate students in actively participating in technological challenges/competitions for their future success. Top key determinants identified in this study include: student’s passion in robotics and in innovations; interest of school leaders, faculties and staffs in the field school supports for student’s makerspace; collaboration among team members and experiences from previous teams, their practice/trials; preparedness for future careers and vision of the development in robotics and mechatronics domains.
